COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Palate Wrecker was originally brewed for the Hamiltons Tavern 2nd Anniversary celebration. Its the most complicated West Coastinspired IPA we have ever brewedmashing and sparging with hopped wort, in addition to our hop layering regimen for IPA. We use almost 6 lbs/bbl of Columbus and Centennial hops to create this very bitter hop monster (tested at 149 IBU and no extracts in case you were wondering). By popular demand, it is now released for the world to enjoy (even though this beer isnt for everyone, only the real hop heads!!!). Cheers! - Chuck Silva - Brewmaster - Green Flash Brewing

Bomber pours a golden amber with thick frothy off white head. Aroma of citrus an floral hops. Taste loads of citrus an pine hops with a nice sweet malty backbone. Not quite as hoppy as the name suggest but a good IPA. Nice carbonation good lacing. Very enjoyable --Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Decent aroma and basic pour leads to strong hoppy taste and potent mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle. Clear golden orange with a thick, dense, white head and some lacing. Big aroma of caramel, pine, citrus, floral and alcohol. Flavor is lots of bitter hops with a slightly sweet caramel malt and light alcohol bite in the finish. Medium body with a dry mouth feel. Really good IIPA/American barley wine, lives up to the name though.

Each time I say this is the hoppiest beer Ill ever have, I am proved wrong. So here it goes again. Resinous pine sap aroma, wrecks the nose well ahead of the palate. Deep clear orange, looks innocent enough. Extreme bitterness...not even specifically hop accented, just a bitter solo over a malty baseline. That malt element makes the beer fairly smooth, in spite of the big bite up front and even bigger one on finish. Up there with the best double IPAs, although not quite as stupid as expected.

On tap pours copper color with little head. Smells of ganja, toffee, and slight pine needles. Tastes so amazingly complex and hoppy on many dimensions.It is resinous and sticks to my mouth like a hooker to her pimp. Grassy and piny hop flavors that are showcased on top of firm malty presence.

Pours a golden brown on tap with pillowy off-white head that dissipates to leave good lacing. Aroma of hops, piney, citrus, slightly earthy. Taste is hops, hops, slight caramel malt, and more hops. Awesome DIPA if youre a hop lover.

nearbeer (5292) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 22, 2013
On tap. Clear orange-amber with a lasting creamy film. Luscious nose is a mix of grapefruit, caramel and evergreen resin. Taste is resin, beeswax, grapefruit, toasted rye bread, and just enough malt sweetness to sustain all the hop bitterness. Medium-heavy body is smooth with medium carbonation, and dangerously drinkable with no trace of the abv.

This is really good. Id drink it again. And, since I have five of them left, it looks like I will indeed. Um, lets see, aroma... uh, it smells... good. Like hops. Its sorta goldish orangey gold, smallish head, kinda lacy but not crazy sticky-resiny. Taste-wise, its pretty goddamn hoppy, but its not tearing the roof off the mutha or anything. I mean, its hoppy as hell, but I feel like Ruination & Dreadnought are hoppier. I dunno, whatever. Its great, who am I kidding? Id totally buy this again. I really like Green Flashs beers. Wow, that review was stupid.

Pours a copper color with a nice white head, Aroma is pine and citrus. Taste is of grapefruit and pineapple. Super hoppy (happy)! Pretty straight forward. Definitely brewed for the hop heads. Small amount of toffee flavors from the hops. Great Imperial IPA

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours amber/ruby with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma strong of citrusy and piney hops plus a good amount of caramel malts. Flavor the same, with so many hops. Smooth texture. One of the better beers in this style.
